CNBC International has named John Casey as its president and managing director, effective immediately.
In his new role, Casey will join CNBC’s executive leadership team while overseeing CNBC International’s business operations across Asia Pacific, Europe, the Middle East and Africa. He will continue to be based in London.
Casey will be reporting to Satpal Brainch, president of CNBC Business News Worldwide.
Casey succeeds KC Sullivan, who is moving to NBCUniversal to lead a new advertising and partnerships division as president and managing director of Global Advertising and Partnerships.
Casey’s hire comes at a time when CNBC International is growing and continues to be the top business and financial news brand in Europe and the Asia Pacific region.
“For more than 25 years, John has lived and breathed CNBC’s international programming in both Singapore and London,” said CNBC chairman Mark Hoffman. “Not only has he made significant inroads in the expansion of our daily editorial coverage, but he has done a tremendous job of growing CNBC’s presence through the relationships he has built with key partners. I cannot think of anyone better positioned to take the helm of our international business and steer it into the future.”
A veteran journalist, Casey has been with CNBC for more than 25 years, joining as a news assistant and moving up through the ranks over the years.
Recently, he served as senior vice president of international news and programming, where he built its editorial and production team. He is also responsible for growing CNBC International’s audience across all platforms, including TV, digital, social and live events.
